HOME is where the art is

Home is Where the Art Is is a collective of Disabled Artists who have met online since September 2020 to discuss HOMEs programming, influence HOMEs future and inspire their own creative practice. The project had to flex with the times and the group have met almost exclusively online to discuss the HOMEmakers commissions.

Through Nickie Miles-Wildin and Maddy Costa’s creative ice breakers the group began to gel and feel comfortable enough to be honest about what they did and didn’t enjoy, as well as flagging up any issues relating to access. As time went on the group began to share their own practice and work and even began to collaborate on projects.

The group are currently working on an artistic piece relating to ‘What Cultivates Inspiration’ and their time with Home is Where the Art is.
